Business Rates/credits

Anonymous User made this Freedom of Information request to Brighton and Hove City Council This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

A number of our retained clients have been approached by third party companies stating that they are due a rebate of overpaid business rates on unidentified premises. Our clients have invariably contacted ourselves with a view to our releasing the funds on their behalf.

We would therefore be grateful if you can provide under the Freedom of Information Act in an electronic format (Excel) details of non-domestic rate accounts which currently reflect an overpayment (credit) to include; the value of the overpayment, the subject property address and the name of the ratepayer (where not an individual).

Warning: This message has not yet been sent for an unknown reason.

Where the liable party is an individual, the ratepayer details are considered to be personal and therefore exempt from disclosure.

We have not cancelled credits by writing on, with the exception of amounts of less than one pound.
